One thing you have to know about me is that I don’t normally follow trends. I’m a simple person who knows what works for her and sticks to it. With that said, I currently have a huge bag of spinach in my vegetable drawer and some frozen bananas in my freezer…bet you can’t guess what I made for breakfast??? It’s true, I made the ever popular, blog-world wonder – Green Monster smoothie!

First I blended:

  • 1/4 cup oats (for girth)
  • 2 giant handfuls spinach
  • 1 cup skim milk

until everything was completely pulverized. Then I tossed in:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • handful of ice

and whirrrrrrred that baby right up! The result?

SO GOOD AND SO COLORFUL!!! Just as delicious as I’ve been hearing on all the blogs :) And not that spinach has a super distinct taste – but you can’t taste it at all! If you dislike veggies – try this…seriously!

This is one trend I’m glad I tried, because this was extremely delicious and nutritious :) Learn about all the health benefits of spinach here.

Hopefully my GM will keep me fueled for the morning. If the rumors are true, it shouldn’t be a problem!!!

For lunch I packed a red fruit salad with watermelon, raspberries and strawberries. What’s your favorite berry? I think mine’s the rasp…

and a mixed green salad featuring a sliced Braeburn apple and half a chopped yellow squash.

Do you guys eat raw zucchini/yellow squash? I never had (for some reason I thought you couldn’t?!?!? Silly me…) until earlier this year when my Mom was munching on some and of course I got intrigued and had to try. The texture is super interesting and I just love it!

Oh, I also had a cup of my delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter coffee and a small almond biscotti while I was getting ready this morning!

Ok – the fog is so dense this morning, I came out from the bedroom and thought my contacts were all scuffy or something – you can’t see anything outside!! I’m really hoping the rain will hold off today because I’m dying for a repeater of yesterday’s lunchtime walk, today! It was so great!!! :D :D :D

Are you someone that follows and tries out new trends? Whether it be with food, clothes, hair, etc?

I’m a pretty skeptical person by nature (I know, sometimes I really annoy myself with that) so I often times find myself passing on trends. But when you hear the praises sung of something so many times, you’ve got to give it a try right??

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve put in a smoothie before?

I’m going to go with the spinach on this one. I guess I wouldn’t call it weird…just maybe unexpected! I LOVED IT THOUGH and felt so healthy afterwards!!

Eeeeeeeek, I just realized it’s Wednesday – Happy Hump Day friends!!!!!!!
